Terry Gibbs' new CD, 52nd & Broadway: Songs of the Bebop Era, is set to hit stores on July 20. The recording, which also features the talents of Nicholas Payton on trumpet and James Moody on sax, is a new take on twelve tunes that represent the bepop era, one of the most influential eras in the history of jazz. The album is more than a historical tribute. To bring such timeless classics as Lemon Drop, Cherokee, Round Midnight and Night in Tunisia into the present, Terry enlists a strong rhythm section Tom Ranier on piano, Dave Carpenter on bass and Jeff Hamilton on drums and a string section of 16 violins, four violas and four cellos that often feel more in the spirit of big band arrangements than typical orchestral pieces. In other words, the strings swing!

As he approaches his sixth decade as a performer, Terry's unflagging energy and enthusiastic performances continue to impress audiences internationally. He will next perform at the tenth annual West Coast Jazz Party in Irvine, CA on September 3 and 5, and heads to Japan later this year for a series of concerts.

52nd & Broadway: Songs of the Bebop Era is Gibbs second release for Mack Avenue Records. An SACD version of his critically acclaimed 2002 release, From Me To You: A Tribute to Lionel Hampton, was released earlier this year.

Mack Avenue Records has earned considerable critical acclaim for its jazz releases, which feature great artistic performances from legendary artists such as Terry Gibbs, the Gerald Wilson Orchestra, and Oscar Castro-Neves, as well as from exciting newcomers such as Eugene Maslov, Ilona Knopfler and Ron Blake.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
